Christian Counselor/Church Planter (Trieste - Tergeste)

Opportunity in Italy


Do you have a degree in counseling that you’d like to use along with working to see a new church established? Do you have a heart for connecting hurting people with Christ and a caring community? Are you interested in building up the body of Christ, teaching believers to help each other as well as those outside the body of Christ? If so, we’d love to talk with you!

We are putting together a team to begin a new church in the beautiful port city of Trieste, Italy. While the need for a Christian counselor in the city is great, this probably won’t be a full-time counseling job, at least not at first. You would be an integral part of the church-planting team as well. The opportunities for ministry beyond counseling are limitless: friendship evangelism, hospitality, discipleship, ministry to families, ministry to the young as well as to the elderly, Bible studies, etc.


Love and be committed to the church
Servant’s heart, teachable, flexible, team-player
Degree in counseling or psychology; 2+ years of experience in counseling preferred
Bible training – at last 1 year in Bible or theology
Self-starter but able to work with others and not a lone-ranger
Ability to teach and apply Biblical principles cross-culturally
Italian needed (can be learned after arriving)
